Call Ahead

Photobucket

Delighted: Walking from the train station to the bus stop on my way home this evening, glancing in the window of a little, inauspicious diner, seeing the handsome couple (tousled hair, complimentary but not matching wool crewneck sweaters, nervous perma-smiles), hands resting on thighs, perfect posture, both staring at their table-top menus. First date, blind date, friend-of-a-friend? You are doing fine, he likes you, just breathe and keep smiling. Not embarrassed to meet somewhere so cheap, unpretentious, and homey so early? How honest, how admirable in a sub-culture that values sexy and flash over substance and quality. May there be many more like you, with your humanness and lack of pretension.

Relieved: Maybe Friday night is only as much fun as you deserve, as much relief as your week has earned. Left Moral Bank W's corporate brainwashing center at 4 o'clock, rewarded self for small attempts at subjugating the dominant paradigm during return to 40-hour work week by going ice skating at the humble and adjacent Daley Plaza rink (slab?). Tranquil, nearly deserted until a group of five year-old little girls and their camcorder-toting Young City Moms converged for a class. Fled to Old Navy, purchased another jean jacket, employing the following reasoning: having a dark one, medium one, and light one means that no matter what wash is in style in a given year, I should have it covered. I should never have to buy another jean jacket ever again. Blue one, anyway. Caribou for coffee and a book. Espresso makes my legs tingle.

Sickened: The train, or at least the one particular area of the train where I had the misfortune of sitting this morning, smelled like vomit. Is it the man next to me? No, he's well-groomed, older, and reading one of the LGBTQQI papers. Is it someone behind me? Did I step in it? Is it on my shoes?

At home: Started thinking about the city today, how I interact with it, how I respond to it, how I think of it and me and us together. Decided that it is a relationship, oneself and the place where one lives. Analogous, at least.

Away from home: Sitting next to Chinese speakers, still thrilling, still intriguing, wishing that I was brave enough to talk to them and make friends, invite them over for a grapefruit green tea.

With plenty of nice moments and a couple of perfect ones, it was a good day.

I concur about the jean jacket reasoning.

I've talked at length with my friend Josiah about his relationship with Chattanooga. He's not from here, so it started out as just casually dating. They are much more serious now, possibly even engaged. Funny though, I don't think of myself as having a relationship with Chattanooga. Maybe it's different when it's home? I don't know.

We have grapefruit green tea at work. I'm not a fan. The grapefruit taste is not strong enough.

If you've exhausted the reasons/excuses to add to your jean jacket collection, you could always buy Scott one. He would probably love one for graduation. :-)

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
